If you asked the average golfer to play word association and pick the first word that came to their mind when it comes to the British Open, wind would be a popular answer.
High winds pose all sorts of challenges for players of all ability levels, but among the most difficult is playing directly into a strong headwind.
In this video segment, School of Golf host Martin Hall shares a tip that he got from three-time British Open winner Nick Faldo for more effective shots into the wind.
